Formerly known as Sandton Square, Nelson Mandela Square is linked to Sandton City and is one of the most fashionable destinations in Johannesburg, offering 93 exclusive shops and boutiques, as well as fine dining experiences and sidewalk cafes.
New York has the Statue of Liberty, Egypt the Great Sphinx and Brazil the Christ the Redeemer statue. And Sandton, South Africa? We have a world famous statue of the man who led our country to an equal rainbow nation, Nelson Mandela.
Standing six meters tall and weighting 2.5 tons, the bronzed Nelson Mandela statue in the Nelson Mandela Square was unveiled on the centre’s 10-year anniversary in March 2003. The unveiling also served as a celebration of 10 years of democracy in South Africa as well as the renaming of the centre from Sandton Square to Nelson Mandela Square.
The Sandton Library and the 5-star Michelangelo Hotel are both located adjoining Nelson Mandela Square.
